Silly


This is why I like you.

And because you’re a great dancer.

I think I’ll keep you a little longer.

Things I learned this weekend…

Wear sunscreen (I will never learn).

I’m too old for outdoor music festivals.

Jalapeno lemonade is the greatest thing to ever touch my lips. Weird but great.

Bra tops and high wasted shorts that go up your butt are IN style right now.

Antique taco is the cutest little restaurant in Chicago. Order the fish tacos and if your boyfriend orders a milkshake, drink it all.

Running in the rain is not as romantic as in the movies. It’s actually quite dangerous.

Taking the mega bus at 11 pm and getting back in town at 8 am just in time for work is probably not the smartest thing I have ever done.

Too be young (& stupid) and in love is really all it’s cracked up to be.

yous my favorite.


Whenever this boy comes home it feels like we live in this delicious bubble of laughs, naps, talks, kisses, and more laughs. We have no need for time or schedules, just lots and lots of being together. It really is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

“We laughed and laughed, together and separately, out loud and silently, we were determined to ignore whatever needed to be ignored, to build a new world from nothing if nothing in our world could be salvaged, it was one of the best days of my life, a day during which I lived my life and didn’t think about my life at all.”
Jonathan Safran Foer

You’re good for my soul.…I think I’ll keep you.

Summer at its finest


Best weekend of the summer thus far. Thank you CGG.

A little love story


A year ago today I met a wonderful person who has without a doubt made my life more fun, more giggly, more spontaneous, more goofy (!!!), more adventurous, more meaningful and all around better.

XL foreheads. Meant to be.

A year ago today boy meets girl on the steps outside of a bar (classy).

Girl and boy talk about their love for Frank Lloyd Wright, architecture and other dorky things. (Girl pretends to know more about architecture than she actually does to impress boy. Guess it worked, Booyaaaah.)

Girl thinks boy is interesting (and cute) and decides to ask him out. (Of course, after discussing this with her mother. Mother approves.)

Boy does the actual asking out (duh) and girl says sure!

At my sister’s wedding. My family liked this boy more than me, so I had to keep him.

I like your glasses.

Farm in the fall.

Then girl gets too nervous and cancels but boy is persistent and reschedules.

Boy and girl go on a little dinner date, share their weird stories, and have an all over splendid night.

(Girl still remembers boy showing up in his staple plaid shirt and thinking he is the cutest thing that has ever showed up at her front door.<—Truth.)

Corey’s #1 O!
Skiing trip…aka the trip caitlin almost died.

Then girl and boy decide they are quite fond of one another, spend the rest of the summer together, and as they say, the rest is history!

And they lived happily ever after. (…as long as girl doesn’t kill rosie.)

Thanks CGG for being your weird little self. You really are my most absolute favorite thing ever. And the fact that you haven’t run away screaming yet has to mean something!Winking smile

because I feel especially lovey this week for this one and because I haven’t done one of these omg-i’m-annoyingly-head-over-heels-in-love-with-this-boy post in a while, so it’s long over due!

I like your face.

“oh god it’s wonderful
to get out of bed
and drink too much coffee
and smoke too many cigarettes
and love you so much

-frank o’hara.

This statement is so true. Minus the cigarettes part. (Asthma people, duh!)

Although, I do think smoking looks really cool. Sorry mom.

This picture is my background on my computer and every time I see it, I giggle because I actually think that is quite possibly the cutest face I have ever seen. I can’t get over it.

It makes me so happy and so does that 25…errr 26-year-old boy. (Were still working on remembering his age). Winking smile

Chicago take 2 – day 1


If I could sum the whole weekend up in one word it would be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Wait what?!

Since I can’t sum it up in one word, I’ll just recap the whole weekend.

Deep breath! Here we go!

Before I get to Day 1 of Chicago, I have to start with my flight out to Chicago.

Here’s what I discovered about airports- I don’t like them. And really, I don’t like the whole airport-travel-flying thing either. Especially when they delay my flight. Believe me, I really wanted to be that kind of person who enjoys the whole traveling airport thing, but I really don’t. End of story.

Chicago Day 1- Let the shopping festivities begin!

Since Corey had to work all day, I decided to do what I do best, shop! And shopping is what I did. Lots of shopping. So much shopping my card stopped working. No I’m just kidding, but I was afraid that might actually happen. I literally shopped til I dropped on the ground of Millennium park and woke up confused as to where I was, sunburnt and with a frozen Klondike bar next to me that was definetly not there before I laid down. (p.s. they still make Klondike bars?!) and grass stuck in my hair. I’d have to say it was a greaaaaat day!

Since I’ve only been to Chicago twice, I didn’t really know where anything is located. I told Corey to just drop me off at Michigan Ave and let me run wild! I also told him to hand over his credit card and no one would get hurt.This,unfortunately, did not happen. (…shucks!)

I basically just walked up and down the streets, looking for stores I liked (and could afford) and tried to not get run over by any crazy Chicago taxi drivers. All was a success!

After I had enough shopping (is that even possible?) I decided to relax with a glass of wine at a  little restaurant  that overlooked the city.

At this point, I was feeling pretty proud of myself for exploring the city all by myself, not getting lost and was really enjoying my alone time.This feeling lasted until some random man came up to me and asked me why I was sitting all alone at a restaurant.

Um…It’s 5 o’clock somewhere…?

Since I didn’t have a comeback, I played deaf until he walked away. Here’s where I decided I was over the whole hanging out in Chicago alone.

After work we headed out to a jazz bar that apparently was known for Chicago’s ‘best happy hour’. (This would be Corey’s findings. I’d just like to make that clear for the sake of the story). This little jazz bar was called Green Mill and as soon as we stepped into the bar it felt like we were on the set of the movie Ray Charles. The bar was great but for $20 for two tiny cocktails, I would have to disagree with it being Chicago’s ‘best happy hour’. Either way, it was a great little adventure.

After happy hour, we headed out for dinner at a cozy little restaurant next to where Corey lives. The food was good but the conversation was better. On our walk home we decided if anyone had been listening to our conversation they would have thought we were two very strange individuals. We thought we were pretty stinkin’ funny….and weird.

After dinner we called it a night and were in bed by 10 pm. <—crazy party animals, I know I know.

Day 2 recap tomorrow…the day of 145,103,102 gazillion steps (and a whiny Caitlin).
